Introduced in 1989, OUVERTURE is Riedel's elementary entry level series for customers who appreciate good, reasonably priced wine and glassware. With this champagne flute, Riedel launches an outstanding, elegant and functional new shape. The slightly curved bowl delivers the full complexity and sometimes surprising concentration of a champagne's bouquet. On the palate, the glass emphasizes champagne's fine mousse and creamy texture, as well as highlighting its fruity character, harmony and balance. A tiny etched point at the bottom of the bowl guarantees a steady stream of fine bubbles. All Riedel glasses are dishwasher safe.
